IBM ISS announces IPS for small offices

GX 3002 gateway tool released

IBM's Internet Security System division has announced an intrusion-prevention system, the GX 3002, designed primarily to guard against attacks against small branch offices or machines, such as bank ATMs or kiosks.

The ISS Proventia Network Intrusion Prevention System GX30002 is an gateway-based appliance intended to support a single-network segment at up to 10Mpbs throughput, says Jim Brennan, ISS marketing manager. The GX300 is based on the same intrusion-prevention functionality found in higher-speed ISS equipment.

"The GX 3002 works in three basic modes, which are blocking; pure detection and monitoring; and an in-line simulation that lets you see what you would have blocked if you turn blocking on," Brennan says. The GX 3002 can be managed via the ISS central management console, SiteProtector. It can also be managed via a simple Web browser interface.

Brennan says the GX 3002, priced at US$4,000, is available in an appliance model he described as a two-port Ethernet "desktop form factor."

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
